I haven't fully figured it out myself yet Pete.
  • You need to register a username first.
  • Then click on the "Enter Chat Room" link
I met Sarge in there last night but I didn't figure out how to get video working yet.
Leave it open on another tab while you are online and I'll try contacting you if I see you in there.
  • Also you need to be using either Chrome, FireFox or Opra

So, I just signed up to take a look - do I need a mic & webcam to use it?

(I'm presently on a desktop with neither, but could plug a mic in.)

(Else, I could dig out an old netbook/laptop to try it out - probably the best option.)

Edits:
Right just tried plugging in a mic on my desktop, but it didn't find it - so, looks like it will have to be a laptop.

Just tried with a laptop, but it still says it can't find my mic or camera.
(It could be that I need to do more than just log in, but don't know what, as I've never used a chat room like it?)

Open voice recorder and see if you can record something first. The laptop probably has a built in mic so you may not need to plug in a mic

There are going to be a few teething problems until we figure out how to use this, So don't anyone get frustrated and throw a computer out a window :)

I don't have Voice Recorder - I use Linux, & sometimes, BSD. :P
All my machines are able to record under normal circumstances.
Will try again later. :)

I've attached the user manual to this post for anyone who wants to read up. The first 10 pages covers the features we would be interested in. Some of it goes into detail about configuring settings for the back end. So its not a very user friendly manual for basic chat room user.

Chat Room User Manual

I think I have it figured out. This is what you want to be seeing Then you click the blue video button beside peoples names and they have to accept the conference call.
